Welcome to the website of Voluntary Action Scotland.
Voluntary Action Scotland is the national organisation for local third sector infrastructure - focusing on issues that matter to you and responding to your needs.
VAS, the Scotlandís newest infrastructure organisation, was created in May 2009. It is the membership body for third sector interfaces and their constituent members.
Local Third Sector interfaces have now formed across Scotland. The new interface arrangements bring together four key, local infrastructure functions:
- support to voluntary organisations operating in the area, both local and those national organisations that deliver services at the local level;
- support to and promotion of volunteering;
- support and development of social enterprise;
- connection between the Community Planning Partnership and the third sector.
